Author Marian Schembari recently wrote an essay on being diagnosed autistic in adulthood for Cup of Jo, a popular lifestyle blog. I loved reading it. For starters, I can identify a lot with her experience having been diagnosed as an adult myself. And it’s amazing to see neurodivergent voices represented in popular blogs.




This Publication is for all who are Autistic and for those of our kind. It is for the Neurodivergent, for those on the Spectrum of all Gender Identities, the LGBTQ*, and all others who are justifiably non-conformant to Society’s harmful marginalization and Ableist views of us.
